Past Performances

M4M-PosterDirected by Simon Pell

Summer 1995

The political scandal and intrigue of Measure for Measure shifted naturally to a contemporary setting, with characters facing the electric chair in front of walls graffitied with newspaper headlines.

David Blackie was cast as the Duke but, when he fell ill shortly before the production, director Simon Pell was obliged to read the part from a script carefully disguised as a Bible.
